Our newsfeed service is able to collect news articles from mainstream news media from the whole world. Information about the new content is obtained through RSS feeds. When new information is detected we visit the news page of the article and collect the article content.
The collected content comes from more than 30.000 news sources worldwide. The daily amount of content is between 250.000 - 300.000 news articles. The languages that are represented the most are English, German, Spanish, French, Chinese and Italian.

Each event that is mentioned in the news is usually reported by several news publishers. By analyzing the content of news articles, Event Registry is able to identify groups of articles describing the same event.
Each event is assigned a unique id and is associated with the articles that are describing it. Event Registry can even find articles in different languages that are describing the same event and treat them as the same event.
By analyzing the articles assigned to the event, Event Registry is able to extract the main information about the event.
Additionally, the events are also categorized into the DMOZ taxonomy.
Events are usually related to each other. The event where HSBC bank issued an appology over secret Swiss bank accounts is directly related to the event where HSBC admitted helping its customers dodge taxes.
